I tried on some of the jeans I bought before I left Austin. They were too small then, but I knew where to get discounted Levis then & was confident I'd fit into them eventually, so went ahead and got several pairs.
Most of them now fit -- m... Read more
I truly believe that. Without the bad times, we can't enjoy the good times. When we get out of balance, for whatever reason, life isn't as sweet. Too much exercise and we run the risk of injuries and actually lowering our immune systems. Too muc... Read more
I swear I'm ready to trade him in for a new model at the moment. Everything is about me, me, me. Something he often accuses me of, but he's damn good at it too.
Our plan for dinner yesterday was to cash in our coupons for the free KFC dinne... Read more
Many thoughts went through my head today. But today, for the first time since I moved (roughly 2 1/2 weeks ago), I did one of my exercise DVDs. Could you hear my sigh of relief where you live?
It feels good; really good. I chose a fairly ne... Read more
I just want it done; I want the house to be clean and neat and free of clutter. Doesn't matter that it's taken me about 25 years to accumulate this stuff, I just want to spin my house and have everything go into its respective home. Too bad you ... Read more
Sometimes I'm really just amazed at the way the universe works. After the great cookie escapade of yesterday (they're all gone; DH finished them off), today I decided to try the sample I'd received at last week's WW meeting: a chocolate chip bro... Read more
Most people say that if you give up something for a couple of weeks, you're well on your way to giving it up for good.
I have been jonesing for a cookie, a brownie, a piece of cake. Oh, I'm not trying to give up sugar. Sure, sugar is empty ... Read more
This applies to both weight loss and moving.
Every time I think I've made progress -- and obviously I have -- I get depressed again when I start counting up all the boxes in the garage just waiting to be moved into the house, not to mention... Read more
Julia Cameron writes about synchronicity in "The Artist's Way". Basically, if you're open to it, you'll start to see how everything is connected.
I took the dogs for a long walk at a park today. I learned about the park in my WW meeting. If... Read more
At least some of the time. Or maybe it was the different scale. Who knows? I'm just happy to have had a larger weight loss this week, and to actually know I've not only maintained, but continued to lose weight even with so much out of my control... Read more
Wasn't planning to blog today. Didn't really have a topic in mind. Yet as I struggled to find homes for yet more stuff, I am struck by chasm between who I am and who I want to be, wondering how to get there. Sound familiar?
I read books and... Read more
I came up with today's topic yesterday, but I was going to call it something about being patient with yourself. Then I finished "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl" (see yesterday's blog). She beat me to it!
Lisa, the author, talked about how lif... Read more
I really didn't realize the similarities between moving and weight loss til I actually moved. I've been reading a book called "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl" -- see formerfatgirl.com/ .
In it, towards the end, the author (w... Read more
I'll get to the title . . . eventually. First I need to kvetch a bit. My husband couldn't understand why I'd want to set up my own computer, probably because space is tight in this office and it requires moving things around, not to mention th... Read more
Since I grew up just 90 miles south of Albany, it feels oddly like home here. The roads, the houses, the subdivisions . . . even some of the roads are actually the same routes as back home, and if I just headed south on them, eventually I'd get ... Read more
